    Subject[PATCH] ACPI: Idle C-states disabled by max_cstate should not disable the TSC
    From: Len Brown <len.brown@intel.com>

    Processor idle power states C2 and C3 stop the TSC on many machines.
    Linux recognizes this situation and marks the TSC as unstable:

    Marking TSC unstable due to TSC halts in idle

    But if those same machines are booted with "processor.max_cstate=1",
    then there is no need to validate C2 and C3, and no need to
    disable the TSC, which can be reliably used as a clocksource.
